(started new subject line as this diverges)

how much is the current xquery draft http://www.w3.org/TR/xquery-11/

tracking http://www.w3.org/TR/xqueryx/

Were there arguments ever to model the grammer with xml then derive a
shorthand version of XQuery e.g. you have mentioned the benefits but
what are the limitations ?

Also we saw some extensions at XML Prague of xquery (presented by
